Down South: Mimbalut Falls in Iligan City, Lanao del Norte

The province of Lanao del Norte is home to more than a dozen waterfalls, and the most well-known or recognizable ones are, without a doubt, the Maria Cristina Falls and the Tinago Falls. But there is such a thing as the “Tourism Triangle” of Iligan, and those two waterfalls are among the three. What completes the triangle is Mimbalut Falls. Read more

Down South: The Macaraeg-Macapagal Ancestral House in Iligan City

It seems that, even with zero intentions, I still end up visiting a museum of sorts whenever I go anywhere. Don’t get me wrong; visiting museums is interesting, but compared to being outdoors, personally, the prospect pales in comparison. We did not even know about this place, until our driver-slash-guide for our day-of-chasing-waterfalls mentioned it. Read more

Wrapping Up Camiguin: Why You Should Visit (…and where to eat)

As I was going through my Camiguin blog series, a lot of thoughts were running through my head, and one of the most persistent was the idea of whether I could ever really come back.

So the original plan – and the main reason we chose Camiguin to visit – was to hike up to the crater summit of Mt. Hibok-Hibok.

But then, tropical depression Marce happened, and when nature speaks and howls, humanity is pretty much helpless. BUT! Not entirely hopeless.

Down South: The Katibawasan Falls of Camiguin

(It’s Monday, September 18, 2017. BTS comeback. So excited~! OK, back to business.) Gawd, I love waterfalls. They’re just so… majestic. Tall, short, plenty of water or not, I cannot help but be in awe of them. I can’t explain it. As much as I appreciate a calm pond or lake surface, or the emerald color of the sea, or the calming sound of rushing water in a stream, there is something about waterfalls that just captures me. Beside them and before them, I feel small and helpless, but blessed at the same time. Does that make sense?
